Palau is an island country located in the western Pacific Ocean and has become a popular tourist destination for Taiwanese in recent years. Palau is famous for its pristine white sand beach with crystal clear waters and picturesque nature. Rock Islands in Palau’s Southern Lagoon has been inscribed on the World Heritage List and it has around 400 mushroom-shaped limestone islands surrounded by coral reefs. Taiwan’s China Airlines has direct from Taipei to Koror, Palau.

 

Beijing in late November last year issued a ban on Chinese tourist groups visiting Palau, which some call it a measure to punish Palau for its relationship with Taiwan. But Ambassador Dilmei Louisa Olkeriil, the ambassador of Palau said she did not understand why that piece of news was widely reported in Taiwan as she mentioned that a couple of years ago, Palau also restricted the number of Chinese tourists to Palau as the government of Palau does not wish to see the environment being threatened as too much human activity will increase pollutants. Palau began the fight to protect the environment in 2015 and a new initiative has been taken by Palau to protect the environment, that is “passport pledge” that visitors must sign before entering Palau.

Saint Lucia is an island country located in the eastern Caribbean Sea. The ambassador of Saint Lucia Ambassador Hubert Emmanuel said agriculture is an important industry for Saint Lucia as it has to satisfy the demand of the growing tourism sector.

 

Saint Lucia is not only self-sufficient in the production of many fruits and vegetables but exports them to other countries as well. Since 2010, the banana industry has been threatened by black sigatoka, a leaf-spot disease of bananas, and Taiwan has been helping the farmers fight black sigatoka in Saint Lucia, thereby guiding farmers in implementing disease control measures and restoring capacity back to the banana industry in Saint Lucia. 

 

Before assuming the post as the ambassador in Taiwan, Ambassador Hubert Emmanuel once served as the vice minister of agriculture, vice foreign minister, and the deputy consul-general in New York.
